A large portion of popular media is remixed: existing media content is spliced and re-ordered in a manner that serves a specific narrative. Super Cut Notes is a semi-comical content remix tool that allows a user to splice and combine the smallest bits of media: words. By tapping into the dataset of our group's SuperGlue platform, it has access to a huge dictionary of words created by SuperGlue's transcription module. Users are able to input a text of any length, choose video-bits of individual words that match their text, and create a video of their combination—in the style of cut-and-pasted ransom notes.
